Somehow that word is synonymous with this time of the year. New Year's resolutions, detox plans and a definite decision to rid your life of all the toxic people. The way I have been doing propaganda for skincare through last year, I might as well be called the skincare whisperer or something, but I think skincare is going to be HUGE this year. And with the advent of K-beauty, the double cleanse has made its way into every beauty enthusiast’s CTM routine.
Keeping up with that theme, here are a few of my favourite cleansing products and some that are on my wishlist to make sure you wipe that slate off and begin 2018, squeaky clean!
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam
I have taken a liking to water-based foam cleansers, their light and frothy texture is great for sensitive skin.
Kara Cleansing And Refreshing Wipes With Neem And Tea Tree
Wipes are my best friends. Whether I need a mid-day cleanse, or I am too lazy to remove my make-up after a long night, wipes are always my go-to.
Anatomicals Deep Cleansing Mud Mask
As I am writing this I am ordering it for my next spa night. Deep cleansing while watching Full House re-runs is what 2018 is going to be all about! But seriously though, I give them bonus points for the packaging!
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
Friend, this is a game changer! This balm practically melts the make-up off your face while moisturising and nourishing your skin. THIS is my holy grail!
Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cleansing Oil
This is step 2 of the double cleanse once you take your make-up off with a wipe or micellar water. I don’t know how I was cleansing my face before, but now I can’t do without it!
Natio Electrical Deep Cleansing Face Brush With Bag
I bought this brush a while back and it is perfect for when you’re looking for that deep cleanse after a long day. This brush does 2 things, it exfoliates your skin with your cleanser and it gets the blood pumping to your face. It feels great after, but don’t go nuts with it, use it thrice a week at the most.
Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub
This has been on my wishlist for a while. This gentle scrub cleanses and exfoliates your body so the moisturisers can seep into your skin better. That’s always a good deal!
Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser And Make-up Remover
This cleanser has been my favourite since I laid my hands on it. This month when I pick it up, it will be the 5th time I’ve purchased this. Don’t be fooled by its light and refreshing texture, it removes the most stubborn make-up with one quick swipe. I use it even if I don’t have make-up on, it works amazingly as a toner.
The Nature's Co. Coffee Face Scrub
Okay honestly I bought this because it was coffee, but this scrub has me feeling my skin more than I should. It makes my skin baby soft and the coffee fragrance isn’t a bad thing either.
L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refine Pores
Using this baby once a week will make sure your skin has the best skin life this 2018. Just follow this cleanse with a heavy duty moisturiser.
Start this year on the right face. Cleanse all the toxins as you move along, because YOU need to do you with flair. Nothing is tainting your pretty face now!
